Conservation Internship 2018 – Call for applications

The Heritage Council and the Chester Beatty Library are pleased to announce a twelve-month internship in book and/or paper conservation. The scheme is co-funded by the Heritage Council and the generous support of the Library’s Patrons. The internship offers the opportunity to gain professional workplace experience within a prestigious institution.

This year we had the opportunity to catch up with many of the fantastic interns we have had the pleasure to work with over the years at our first Conservation Symposium on 8th June. We look forward to posting a review of this event in the coming weeks.
